Been asked by a BTL landlord to do some work to bring a small terraced house
up to standard.
BCO have specified that the existing door leading to the kitchen should be
fitted with intumescent seals and cold smoke seals.
She assures me that the existing door is a fire door, but I'm getting alarm
Two reasons; I thought all fire doors should already be fitted with
intumescent seals as standard? And the door doesn't have a self closer of
any sort. I thought that should be standard as well?
How do I know its really a fire door?
Not sure what cold smoke seals are either.
Not a job I want really, given the graphic descriptions from my paramedic
daughter of the 'house fire, persons reported' calls she attends.
